Where do queen wasps go in the winter?

< Back

Queen wasps typically spend the winter in a state of dormancy, during which they do not eat or move around much. They typically find a sheltered spot, such as in a crack in a wall or in the ground, and remain there until the weather warms up in the spring. When the weather becomes warmer and more conducive to wasp activity, the queen will emerge from her dormant state and begin to build a new nest to raise her young. In some cases, queen wasps may also seek out a warm, sheltered place inside a building, such as an attic or crawl space, to spend the winter.
